Making a larger light fruit cake
Hi Lindsey, I want to make Delia's Light Glacé Fruit Christmas cake for my daughter's wedding in June 2019. The recipe in Chrismas book and Delias complete cookery book is for an
8 inch round cake.
I see that Delia recommends that for 40-55 guests that a 9 inch round cake is needed. I would like to scale it up to a 9 inch round cake but don't know how to increase the quantities of ingredients and time.
I will also be making other cakes too as I know Young people don't like traditional fruit cake, which is a shame.
I made this cake at Christmas 2018, to sample in addition to Delias traditional cake and it was absolutely amazing and definitely want it for the wedding.
Best wishes, Philippa
